Sea Tutors fills a specialist niche in the private tutoring sector. It has been created by the prestigious team at Tutors International to provide an academic structure to life on the ocean waves.
Adam Caller, who founded Tutors International in 1999, explains the Sea Tutors division of the world-renowned tutoring company:
“Over the years we’ve provided many clients with private tutors that travel with the family, on land and at sea, to provide consistent, all-encompassing education that fits in with the family’s lifestyle. Our clients are often privileged to be able to afford to take extended vacations, sabbaticals, or even simply explore the world together for a few years. We chose to create a new division of the Tutors International brand to better showcase our unrivalled experience in this specialist area.”
Tutors International is known globally for its outstanding level of support to both clients and tutors, as well as the rigorous recruitment process to find exceptional educators that fit in perfectly with each individual family. Mr Caller explains how each sea tutor is handpicked, “Many of the tutors we recruit have additional qualifications and experiences, allowing them to fully explore the learning potential of the voyage, even enabling them to be active members of the crew should this be required.”
Whether clients plan to spend the majority of their voyage on the open seas, or to use their yacht to move from one location to another exploring the coastline, Sea Tutors provides the same elite education while travelling as can be achieved in a fixed location, while making the most of any setting, absorbing the local geography and culture into lessons.
Mr Caller continued, “Education while travelling is very important – so important that many families don’t make the most of the opportunities available to them for fear of disrupting their children’s school education. Private travelling tuition is not just keeping up with the curriculum back home in school, but making the most of the unique, diverse experiences while travelling.”
There is never a bad time to travel with a private tutor, as Mr Caller explains, “Almost any academic situation can be accounted for with a private tutor, and previous requests for have included full-time schooling including exam preparation; support for children with learning differences such as dyslexia and dyspraxia, creating a project-based curriculum that relates to the travel environment, or elements of all of these.”
“From geology and science lessons on the slopes of a volcano, to helping students write and perform their own Greek tragedies while cruising the Mediterranean, Sea Tutors will make the most of any setting,” as described on the Sea Tutors website, “Having a private tutor on board opens the doors to both adventure and education.”
